Blood nosed


The natural colors accented by some bright material is a popular combination on the sea trout flies for colder water.

Ron,

The fly is a Blood Nosed Frede, and it's basically the same as The Grey Fred with the added benefit of a red front hackle or -- as here -- red dubbing over the eyes in stead of the grey marabou used for the regular pattern. Sometimes the marabou body dubbing is also mixed with or replaced with something brighter like synthetic Ice Dubbing.

Like the looks of this fly. Would like know more about it and how to dress it.
